Smokey says I’m sitting some of the slumping guys in the lineup on Sunday so he plays Raburn .206 for Dirks .286.. and Sizemore .206 for Santiago .293…why does that make perfect “Leyland ” sense…….fire him today please!

Mr X May 22, 2011 at 2:17 pm

I got no problem with the line-up. When a good lefty pitcher is starting against us, I’d expect to see Leyland use a heavy right handed line-up. From 2008 to 2010, Paul Maholm has dominated lefty hitters. He has a .552 opposing OPS vs Lefty hitters and .815 vs Righties.

How about the “Mendoza brothers” Inge Raburn Sizemore all in the lineup today. Luckily the UM regional softball game is on so you can flip back and forth to players who can actually hit!!!

Mr X May 22, 2011 at 2:26 pm

I heart Peralta. Looks like he’s having a breakout year.

attaboy.!!…Jhonny

Coleman May 22, 2011 at 2:49 pm

We won the Raburn Roulette

Baseball Name Police May 22, 2011 at 3:04 pm

Chris Resop is pitching under an assumed name, that last name is clearly made up. It spells “Poser” backwards.

R3L2O Police May 22, 2011 at 3:07 pm

Mr. Inge, you are under arrest.

judpma May 22, 2011 at 3:09 pm

Inge reinforces the Mendosa Bros Stat line

Mr X May 22, 2011 at 3:11 pm

Porcello had a OK no-hit bid there.

Mr X May 22, 2011 at 3:15 pm

Tailor made double play. Nice job Porcello.

judpma May 22, 2011 at 3:14 pm

Does Porcello know the “Blowpen” will not help him today???? its 8 innings or nothing

judpma May 22, 2011 at 3:16 pm

thats the last thing I thought would happen….wow out of a jam

Coleman May 22, 2011 at 3:20 pm

Rick Porcello at the plate > Sizemore, Raburn, Inge

judpma May 22, 2011 at 3:20 pm

that officially confirms the fact that Porcellois a better hitter than any of the Mendoza Bros..Inge,,Raburn,,Sizemore and Jackson

Mr X May 22, 2011 at 3:25 pm

Man, that home plate umpire sucks. It seems like every bad call goes against the Tigers.

Mr X May 22, 2011 at 3:26 pm

Raburn !!! Oh no, just a little bit foul.

judpma May 22, 2011 at 3:27 pm

lets see….. a lead off single with 3 of the Mendoza Bros coming up in arow,,,,that had zero possibilities of success…….

Mr X May 22, 2011 at 3:29 pm

Raburn almost went deep. He had the distance, but it hooked foul. It probably missed the foul pole by <10 feet.

Coleman May 22, 2011 at 3:33 pm

Yes, that was his prettiest strikeout of the day so far.

judpma May 22, 2011 at 3:36 pm

The starting pitching does it again…I wonder if any team has more quality starts than the Tigers…seems like there is one almost everyday

Coleman May 22, 2011 at 3:51 pm

Nooooo! Leave Ricky in! He barely has 80 pitches!

JOE Z May 22, 2011 at 3:55 pm

so upsetting

Mr X May 22, 2011 at 3:59 pm

Another great game for Porcello. That’s 6 games in a row for him, where’s he’s given up 2 or fewer runs.

Coleman May 22, 2011 at 4:08 pm

Welcome to the Blowpen

Coleman May 22, 2011 at 4:14 pm

That was a good old-fashioned Todd Jones Rollercoaster save

Mr X May 22, 2011 at 4:14 pm

What a roller coaster that was.

Kevin in Dallas May 23, 2011 at 5:30 pm

Leyland on Benoit returning to the 8th inning role after a hiatus of 1 game.

“I’d have liked to go a little bit longer [working him along],” Leyland said, “but with some of the kids struggling, I’ve just got to hope he gets the job done.”

Vince in MN May 23, 2011 at 6:23 pm

And he will use him there, because that is what 8th innings are for. I’m actually surprised he didn’t take Porcello out after 7 innings yesterday.
